BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Landscape Workshop recently acquired the landscape maintenance, enhancement and snow operations of EcoLandcare, based in Lexington, Kentucky.

With this expansion in the Lexington area, Landscape Workshop has nine branch locations throughout the Southeast.

“EcoLandcare is a highly respected company that we are eager to bring under the Landscape Workshop banner under the leadership of our Lexington General Manager Sammy Shores," said J.T. Price, CEO of Landscape Workshop. "This acquisition offers LW the opportunity to expand in the Bluegrass area while continuing to provide exceptional service to our clients.” 

EcoLandcare was originally founded by John Thomson in 2010. Thomson will continue to operate Thomson Lawn Care as a key turf chemicals subcontractor to Landscape Workshop and will also serve as senior adviser to Landscape Workshop throughout the transition.

“Landscape Workshop shares the same passion and commitment that EcoLandcare was built on, I have no doubt that they will continue to provide the same quality service our clients are used to receiving," Thomson said. "I look forward to working alongside Landscape Workshop.” 

Landscape Workshop is a full-service grounds management company that has been providing professional service and expert maintenance for outdoor commercial spaces since 1984.

The Majcher Group represented Landscape Workshop in the transaction. The Bradley law firm served as Landscape Workshop’s legal counsel.
